Good morning: “Do you mind if I ask you a question?” the hair cutter said. He went on to explain, “I’ve been trying to get closer to God, but I’m not sure how to do it. I’m reading the Bible, but is there something else?” It’s a common question and a vital one. By nature…

Good morning: With roughly 7.5 billion people as our neighbors, it might seem as though one could never feel alone. Yet that is not the case. Even surrounded by others, we may feel isolated, ignored, and insignificant. Have you ever been in a roomful of people and yet you could have just as well been…

Good morning: A few days ago I was half-listening to the reporters on a network news program talk about when the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree would be taken down. One said, “It will be this weekend because Sunday is the Feast of….(long pause)…. ‘taking down the Christmas tree.’” I’m sure she was trying to remember…

Good morning: I’m going to be more patient…I’ll carve out more family time…This is the year I will finally finish all the projects I start. Have you made your New Year’s resolutions yet?

Good morning: What’s your biggest pet peeve? For many of us it might be “waiting.” Who wants to wait? Who has the time for it? If the webpage doesn’t pop up onscreen in two seconds or less, forget it. A two-day wait for an Amazon package can be torture. Wait for a red light? Only…

Good morning: The countdown has begun—only 24 days ‘til Christmas! Retailers won’t let you forget it.

You have to get ready before it’s too late and the opportunity is lost forever….

Good morning: Now that Thanksgiving is over, what’s next? Are you one of those people who lives for “the next big thing”? As soon as the Thanksgiving dishes are washed and put away, do you go into Christmas mode and map out detailed plans in preparation for family gatherings, exchanging gifts, mailing cards, and baking…

 Good morning: Have you tried out a new restaurant lately? Maybe it’s been around for years, but you just never noticed it before.
